GIVEN he has previously said he would like to add a “body” to his record, it should come as no surprise to hear WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder says he wants to “pop open” the cut Tyson Fury suffered last Saturday (September 21) in Las Vegas when the time comes for them to renew acquaintances in 2020.

Fury was cut twice during a hard-than-expected fight against Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile Arena and required 48 stitches to seal one beside the eye and one on the eyelid. The procedure went well, by all accounts, yet Wilder, held to a draw by Fury last December, considers the damage done to Fury by Wallin to be another sign of the Englishman’s vulnerability.

“When you’ve been in there with a person before, you see a lot of things,” Wilder told Tha Boxing Voice.
